HANZA GOODS STATION

In the beginning of this summer our proposal for Riga goods station renovation competition (corner of Pulkveža Brieža and Hanzas streets) won the 1st prize. Railway goods station as well as extensive New Hanza City project is being developed by company “Pillar”. Currently intensive process towards detailed constructive project is taking place. This building is one of few evidences of the scale and infrastructure of former Riga railway goods station. It has been preserved till nowadays almost untouched with magnificent brick walls and wooden beams. Our concept includes preserving historical substance with no visual transformations. Structure of new building consists of two glazed railway platforms and 1230 sq.m. event hall in the middle for different arrangements. As well as renewed part of historical railway track with dining car and locomotive in the entrance area. Building site is located next to the planned new Museum of Modern art (project is being designed by David Adjaye Architects / AB3D).
